railroad gardening

Another thing to be concerned about would be the chemicals that have leaked 
from railroad cars.  I know a man in Michigan who has done a lot of research 
on this and found that railroad cars that carry toxic chemicals (especially in 
certain corridors - Ohio and Michigan being one of those) can leak onto the 
ground.  Who knows what might be there?!  Thorough soil testing is definitely 
in order.  U. of Massachusetts has a good soil testing lab that is fairly 
inexpensive.  You have to ask them to test for certain chemicals that are not 
in their standard test.
